Following the recent management reorganisation, Estonian Air has decided to drop its route from Tallinn to Munich. New routes to Manchester, Milan (BGY), and possibly some destinations on the Mediterranean coast will be opened instead. The route from TLL to Gothenburg was also dropped a few weeks ago.
The MTOW on one of the B737-500's will also be increased for flights to the Mediterranean destinations.

EDI has indeed been talked about for some time now and I'm sure sooner or later the service will start.
Quoting British767 (Reply 2): Are Estonian Air going to be getting anymore aircraft? I know they have a small fleet, and thought maybe it was a little too small?
They say they're looking for new planes and thinking about one or more 'larger' planes, (probably with some 150-180 seats then) and some in the 70-90 seat region, like the Q400 (probably from SAS) or some RJs.
Quoting Horus (Reply 1): And when they state the "Mediterranean coast" are they referring to Southern Europe or North Africa?
I hear tourist places in Southern Europe, like Alicante, Malaga, Faro, etc, are what's on their minds. I think in the next few years they're going to try to conquer back the Estonian charter market (which has been almost completely taken over by Egyptian, Spanish and Turkish airlines) and will then also fly to Sharm, Hurghada and probably Tunis, too.

50 is a bit small, they only got rid of the F50 a year and a half ago, saying that it was too small for services to Kiev and Vilnius. I'm quite sure that Göteborg could have supported a 70-seater too (when I flew GOT-TLL, the 735 was sold out nearly 100%), if only the new management would have given it a chance.
